Changes to the National Curriculum Lead to Questions, Stress for Australian Families

New education standards cause rise in tutoring services, Tutor Doctor

SYDNEY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Changes to the national curriculum have no doubt shaken up the
educational system, leaving a stressful transition and lingering
questions for students and their families. The added pressure for
success and the new concepts are driving families to seek
extracurricular help, leading to a boom in the in-home tutoring sector
across the country, a $6 billion industry.

Answering the call for private tutoring is Tutor Doctor, a one-on-one
in-home tutoring franchise with three locations in Melbourne and Sydney.
Tutor Doctor is helping students cope with the changes made to
“un-crowd” the curriculum, which resulted in consolidating geography,
history, civics and citizenship into one subject, threatening the
student’s understanding, while adding a new section on domestic
violence. In addition to helping with these changes, Tutor Doctor
provides specialized one-on-one help for primary students in subjects
like maths, and helps HSC students with writing assignments.

“Families continue to turn to our Tutor Doctor locations in Australia
for the personalized in-home tutoring solutions that our franchise model
offers,” said Frank Milner, president of Tutor Doctor. “Since opening
our first location a few years ago, and adding on even more with new
franchise partners, our brand has become a staple in the community,
providing jobs and the support needed to educate the local youth.”

In addition to working with primary and HSC students, Tutor Doctor
offers services to adult learners still longing to increase their
understanding of subjects required for work or lessons skimped on in
